11:21 pm

at this point the temperatures still fairly mild and warm at 68. the biggest concern isn't necessarily going to be just the warm temperatures. it's going to be the increase in those wind speeds. right now we're seeing wind speeds about 20 to 30 miles per hour. not just in napa, but unfortunately we're getting reports of fires in sonoma and there are evacuations under way. and it looks like the threat of that wind will only get worse overnight. this red flag warning is expected to stay in place through tuesday. if we look right now at what we're expecting in terms of the wind speeds, the models showing right now increased wind speeds of about 30 plus miles per hour. temperatures across the area and oakland 65. hayward 72. napa 73. sonoma area temperatures also in the 70s. but this is what i'm talking about when i mean the threat of that wind. that's going to be unfortunately the biggest thing that they're going to have to deal with when fighting this fire. it's going to be tough. napa 41 miles per hour in the
11:45 pm
sonoma county area. also expecting gusty conditions, 40-mile-per-hours. this is only going to get worse overnight. if you live in any of these areas, be prepared not just for that fire threat but the chance of seeing some power outages as those winds kick up overnight. switching gears for tomorrow morning. expect a cool start, breezy to windy. winds carry on through your lunch hour. temperatures rerain in the 80s for livermore. san jose upper 70s. the next seven days we'll keep that wind in the forecast through tomorrow. 77 degrees as we head into tuesday. then closer toward thursday and friday, not just for san francisco but also in inland areas, you can start seeing those temperatures dropping from 80s to 70s. i want to emphasize the fact that the winds are expected to deck up, especially for the north bay, east bay hills, santa cruz mountains. all those high areas are expected to see strong, gusty conditions. please keep that in mind, be prepared should there be think power outages.
